If you want any Nosrams let me know. I'll see what I can do.

You need one of the low profile S9550 servos... might have an extra one for you after I finalize the sale of my WEB.
I had tons of room on my SD with the servo rotated.

I'm using the S9550 as well. Let me know if you want to sell the other one, I do need one for steering in my GT4.

Oh yeah, I'm also building a 1/12 scale car. Going to use the Shooters chassis, some yokomo, some AE parts, should be a very nice car when it's finished though. Cant wait for the ROAR Carpet Champs in March

Can someone recommend a good spring choice for asphault? I'll probably not be going to the carpet track anytime soon as the asphault is closer to me. I know the stock springs are a 1.4mm, 7.00, right? Fairly soft... any recommendations?

AWOLSoldier,

The stock springs are 1.4 x6.00 coil Which is a really good starting point for asphalt.

your really set with the those 1.4 6.0 springs... ive tried some of the others..and i always go back to the 6.0 springs. i did pick up 5.75 and 6.25 just in case... you can really get the cuda dialed just using those springs

snag some sway bars if you get a chance tho... and the gold ball studs.. those helped me in fine tuning my car.

Thanks for the tips brother. What shock ends do you use on the rears? I think randman said he used the shortest ones on the parts tree, i have the medium lengths on all four at the moment.
